Dark Places

A Novel

By Gillian Flynn

Narrated by Robertson Dean, Cassandra Campbell, Mark Deakins & Rebecca Lowman
13 hours 42 minutes

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl.

Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in “The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas.” She survived—and famously testified that her fifteen-year-old brother, Ben, was the killer. Twenty-five years later, the Kill Club—a secret secret society obsessed with notorious crimes—locates Libby and pumps her for details. They hope to discover proof that may free Ben. Libby hopes to turn a profit off her tragic history: she’ll reconnect with the players from that night and report her findings to the club—for a fee. As Libby’s search takes her from shabby Missouri strip clubs to abandoned Oklahoma tourist towns, the unimaginable truth emerges, and Libby finds herself right back where she started—on the run from a killer.

With her blistering debut Sharp Objects, Gillian Flynn hit the ground running. Dark Places demonstrates that was no fluke.

Gillian Flynn is the real deal, a sharp, acerbic, and compelling storyteller with a knack for the macabre.

About the Author

Gillian Flynn is the author of the runaway hit Gone Girl, an international sensation that has spent more than ninety-five weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Her work has been published in forty languages. Gone Girl is now a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox.

A former writer and critic for Entertainment Weekly, she lives in Chicago with her husband and children.

Reviews

Flynn’s well-paced story deftly shows the fallibility of memory and the lies a child tells herself to get through a trauma.

The New Yorker

Once in a while a book comes along that puts a new spin on an old idea. More than 40 years ago, Truman Capote took readers inside the Clutter farmhouse in Holcomb, KS, to show them what it was like to walk in a killer’s shoes. Flynn takes modern readers back to Kansas to explore the fictional 1985 Day family massacre from the perspective of a survivor as well as the suspects. . . . Tight plotting and engaging characters.

  • I was not a lovable child, and I'd grown into a deeply unlovable adult. Draw a picture of my soul, and it'd be a scribble with fangs.
  • The truly frightening flaw in humanity is our capacity for cruelty—we all have it.
  • I am not angry or sad or happy to see you. I could not give a shit. You don't even ripple.
